With the Chinese New Year quickly approaching, footwear brands are quickly queuing in and releasing a plethora of silhouettes inspired by the festive holiday. However, ASICS has decided to venture off the beaten path, by releasing a GEL-Lyte III resembling the traditional dolls of the Buddhist religion.

If the latest GEL-Lyte III looks oddly familiar, a similar offering dubbed “Baltic Jewel” released back in September 2020. The latest colorway is an extension of the Daruma Doll models, only this time the latest offering is dressed in a traditional look.

Elsewhere on the design side, the model is covered in a red and white upper with hues of gold, which are traditional colors of the beloved dolls. Other details include a patent leather ASICS logo on the lateral and medial side and gold accents found on the logos and heels.

If the latest release has caught your attention, grab a look below at the latest images, and be sure to hit up our sneaker release page for all the latest news on upcoming drops. As always keep it locked here at Nice Kicks. The “Daruma Doll” is available on the ASICS website.
